Something challenging

Managed to play this all the way through with only a couple silly mistakes for my piano teacher today. Pleased as punch when she told me that was a grade 5 or 6 piece. There is hope yet I will tame this beast! :D
It should sound like this... http://youtu.be/cKTfcX8NbaM (the first couple minutes... not all the mad stuff after that!! I ain't that gifted!!!)

Chopin is one of my favorites. Congrats on your accomplishment!

Great shot and idea. Well done on playing this, love Chopin. Played the piano years ago and loved this sort of piece.

Well done!!! Yet another accomplishment! I only had a few years way back when but still blame my "turned up" fingers (pic possibly some time in the future) on all the scales I was forced to practice. Great clarity and focus on your pic! (Does getting up in the morning fall into the "something challenging" category?)

@copperheadglass Never too old to start. I've been playing for about 18 months :)
@kwiksilver Photo please!! No scales here... Boring.. My teacher is not typical, but effective all the same.
@jennywren Thanks, my 365 is a bit of a life diary too
